$4-Million Contract For SPM Terminal In Java Sea Awarded To IMODCO

A contract valued at approximately $4 million has been awarded IMODCO, a unit of AMCA International Corporation, by the Independent Indonesian American Petroleum Company for the design and construction of a Single Point Mooring terminal. To be sited in the Java Sea offshore Indonesia in 125 feet of water, the terminal will be capable of rapid integration and subsequent operation at either of two existing berths in the Cinta Field without requiring modification to the prevailing m o o r i n g chain, cargo hose, or hawser systems.

The Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM-type) SPM will include a four-grade MPDU to facilitate transference of produced crude oil. The buoy will measure 13.5 meters in diameter by 14 feet deep, and consist of two 12-inch and two 20-inch piperuns.

As designed by IMODCO, the SPM will accommodate the Cinta Natomas, a million-barrel-capacity tanker, under such maximum s t o rm c o n d i t i o n s as 33.5-foot waves, wind v e l o c i t y of 68.4 knots, and current of 3 knots.

Completion and installation is scheduled for summer 1981.
